Targeting bluegill beds with a shaky head worm is an effective way to catch post-spawn bass, but finding beds can be challenging, especially in dirty or dark water. Wired2Fish’s Mitch Anderson demonstrates the power of side imaging to find shallow-water bluegill beds when the naked eye falls short.
